Nidd Transport adds 10 new SDC curtainsiders to its fleet

The investment aims to enhance the company’s haulage operations together with parent group Xpediator, who acquired the business in 2020, as they build on their long-standing UK and European services.

The new trailers were built at SDC’s Mansfield production base in Nottinghamshire and have joined Nidd’s UK operations, while they also service, Spain, France and Portugal.

Certified to EN 12642-XL Standard, the trailers are engineered with a highly durable, robotically welded chassis, bolt-on body, BPW Eco-plus axles, Haldex Generation 3 braking, ISO regulation and LED lighting, an integrated load securing system and safety components.

“As a group, Xpediator is committed to delivering dynamic supply chain solutions,” Shaun Godfrey, said Xpediator Plc COO Freight Forwarding.

“With a vision to becoming the leading international freight management and logistics provider, we depend on modern and reliable equipment, and I am pleased that our new SDC Curtainsider trailers will help us to continue our world-class transport services.”

Nidd Transport Ltd, General Manager, Heather Glegg said that the investment in its trailer fleet is a testament to how Nidd transport views its customers, offering a premium service using premium equipment.

SDC Trailers offers a customer-centred engineering approach that allows operators to maximise efficiency and savings over the life of the trailer.
